Philosophy of Technology is dealing with question of a fundamental
understanding of technology and its multifaceted interaction with human
existence. The book series „Philosophy of Technology“ is based on the
assumption according to which either fundamental questions of philosophy
concerning technology has not yet been posed or they will require new efforts to
answer them when confronted with new organizational, economical and
technological developments as globalization, economization, growth of world
population, ecological crises, conflicts between south and north, world wide
ranging communication technologies and new ways of information distribution.
The question: „Do we really have the technology we need and do we actually
need the technology we have?“ demonstrate these relations, which are touching
and affecting everybody in our everyday technological world.
